Whether you need a sling assembly or any other product for an overhead lifting application, we know that you’re always looking for the best the lifting industry has to offer.

Advantages of Using a Wire Rope

Wire rope has the advantage of being an affordable, durable, and versatile option when planning a heavy lift. They’re available in a variety of lengths, which makes them perfect for deep drilling, mining, and construction projects. The strength of this type of rope resides in twisting multiple stands of wire to form one thicker rope. While flaws in chain links or solid steel bars can lead to catastrophic failure, flaws in the wires making up a steel cable are less critical as the other wires easily take up the load. Friction between the individual wires and strands, as a consequence of their twist, further compensates for any flaws.

Experienced and Job-Ready

Our customers, their assets, and their safety are what’s most important to us. As such, we’re continually working to improve how we strategize and conduct business, which is why we here at Kennedy Wire Rope & Sling are proud to excel at the following services:

Lifting Ropes Options

At KWRS, we use a number of wire rope lifting solutions, such as XLT4. Its design makes it one of the highest strength-to-diameter ratios on the market. Starlift Xtra is also durable and resistant to crushing. While Flex-X9’s high-density construction minimizes strand nicking, Flex-X6 provides exceptional strength and stability. These are just a few of the different ropes we have available for you.
